The Purity Fist is a community-created promotional cosmetic item for the Heavy. It is a heavily-augmented biomechanical limb with a Sarif Industries Logo near the base of the arm that replaces the Heavy's left arm, however there is no change to the melee damage dealt.
The Purity Fist was awarded in Genuine quality to players who pre-purchased Deus Ex: Human Revolution on Steam before August 26, 2011, and to attendees of the Square Enix booth at PAX Prime 2011 and the 2011 New York Comic Con.
This item was originally designed by Larolaro.
- The Purity Fist was added to the game.
- [Undocumented] Updated the item type to "Cosmetic Augmentation".
- If a Spy disguises as a Heavy with this item, the Spy will only have the arm robotic, but not the hand of the Heavy.
- The Purity Fist is a word play on Purity First, a radical anti-augmentation group in Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
- The texture of the fingers is the same texture used on Heavy's ammo belt.
